Children sing, dance, and have new and exciting themes each week with puppets and delightful imaginary play. After story time children create a theme related craft to take home. No registration is necessary. Please call 488-3030, ext.130 for further details.
An afterschool program for children ages 7-13 to explore all aspects of STEAM including science, technology, engineering, arts (visual arts and language arts) and mathematics. Themes may vary from program to program so that STEAM club members may design and build during one program and then make arts and crafts the next. STEAM members will participate in challenges as emphasis is placed on hands on learning and problem solving skills to promote higher level thinking. Registration is required for this club.
